Racing Bill Holland Driver Wards Riverside Tires Race Car 29 F Smith Photo '46 AAA Wins
Here is a vintage 8 x 10 black and white photograph of race car driver Bill Holland in team Malamud's white sprint car #29 advertising Wards Riverside Tires. The photo was taken by Frank Smith who photographed many drivers and their cars. Holland won 17 of the 77 Triple A Championship Races held in 1946 (the first season since the end of WWII) and 2 out of 11 in 1947. He won the Indianapolis 500 in 1949. He nearly won as a rookie in 1947 but slowed down to allow teammate Mauri Rose to pass him seven laps from the end, mistakenly believing that Rose was a lap down. Holland was from Philadelphia, PA. Born December 18, 1907, died May 19, 1984. Part of bottom edge of photo is torn off. Photo is in good condition otherwise. Purchased from an estate sale.
